Must be 10 pages and include reference page. Double spaced, concisely address issues raised in the questions below: Make sure the authors name is included, title, publisher and publication date at the top of the paper. 1. Discuss the research objectives and theoretical framework used by the author in other words what does he focus on? What is the theoretical context of his work? How does this shape what he focuses on in his work? 2. How does the author conduct his research? Does the author explain why these particular methods were used? Anthropologists face great challenges trying to do ethnography how has the Anthropologist addressed these challenges? Does the anthropologist give you a sense of his personal experiences, if so how? 3. Discuss the setting for the ethnography. Provide some background, where? What is the background of this particular group? How does the approach of the Anthropologist help the study of this group? Does the author address the external context ( history, national society, etc) if so how does the author address the relationship between the local and the global? 4. Provide an overview of the ethnography, summarizing the major points from each chapter. In each section include some discussion analysis of evidence that the author uses. How does this material support the research objective? 5. What have you learned from this kind of approach in constructing an ethnography? What do you think are the strengths? Weaknesses? What insights does the author gain from the theoretical framework processes? What aspects of the culture does the author lose from the same? If this was your Anthropology study, would you do anything different? Why? Include any references but most likely it will just be from the book.
